Leap Year Lunch

Today was National Pancake Day and tomorrow is Leap Day, put them both together and we have a super fun, yummy and filling treat for Molly's lunch.  We love it when things work out so nicely and we can play with a theme.  Speaking of themes, keep an eye out for Friday's lunch.  Molly's school is celebrating Dr. Seuss Day and we have a few ideas brewing. ☺
Our main entree is chocolate chip pancakes.  Molly and her siblings always ask for seconds and sometimes thirds when we make these.  Luckily, we usually make a double batch so that we have leftovers for lunch the next day.  All of the kids will eat them cold for lunch. (Who would've thought?)  We added a little frog pick to the pancakes to represent Leap Year.  Super fun!

Our protein side is a hard boiled egg.  Molly's Daddy and I usually have eggs with our "brinner" (breakfast for dinner) and the kids ask for them sometimes.  When we offered hard boiled eggs tonight, we had some very happy kids.

Our fruit side is red grapes.  They are very firm and juicy.  These served as our dessert after dinner tonight.  Molly's little brother decided to dump his out of his bowl and create a Mickey Mouse with several of them.  Oh, the imagination of a 2 year old.

Finally, our dairy/dessert is Chobani Champions orange vanilla Greek yogurt.  We added a small container of mini chocolate chips in our main container so that Molly can mix them into the yogurt.  This is one of her favorite things ever.
